Martijn Linssen

This is not the original title for this blog, the change is a bow towards the good folks on the ACT-KM listserv, some of whom are checking for a pulse on the teenaged wrist of Knowledge Management. However, for organizational knowledge, the focus is on these conversations.

Is Twitter Where Connections Go to Die? – The Unfollowing Experiment – The Follow-Up

Luis Suarez

Indeed, while re-reading through ‘ Is Twitter Where Connections Go to Die? – One thing I can share with you all is that once I have seen the light of a much smarter way of using Twitter through public lists alone it’s rather tough to go back to anything else for that matter, so I haven’t.

Twitter Is Where Conversations Go To Die

Luis Suarez

Twitter has now become, once again, another messaging board system, like a good bunch of them out there of the once so-called social networking sites. What Twitter did, to use companies like Seesmic to grow and now killing them with their new API rules, is evil.

Making Business Sense of Social Media and Social Networking – Twitter For Business

Luis Suarez

I think we have got a unique opportunity that we didn’t have last time around, which is basically spend enough time to educate our knowledge workers into how to make effective use of these emerging collaborative and knowledge sharing tools within the social computing realm.

When Context Transcends Change Management

Luis Suarez

What if everything we have been told about Change Management over the course of the last few decades was all just … plain wrong? And, somehow, technology seems to be making things much worse, like two completely different worlds colliding with one another! .

The Fallacy of Social Networking

Luis Suarez

You may have noticed how over the course of the last couple of weeks I haven’t been much active on the external social networking tools out there that I usually hang out at, such as Twitter, Google Plus or LinkedIn.

Snap Bird – Experimenting with Curation of Live Tweeting at Conference Events

Luis Suarez

Seeing how cumbersome it has become to then put together those various insights into meaningful blog posts I kept thinking what a pity that I would not be able to refer back to those tweets after a short period of time just because Twitter decided it was not helpful (to them!)

Transforming the Workplace with Radical Management by Steve Denning

Luis Suarez

But in reality what we are seeing is how platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google Plus, etc. And if you look into recent examples of wrong-doings by Facebook, Twitter or even LinkedIn that we have seen all over the place we may be starting to think that we are all in big trouble.

Reflections from 2011 – Focused and Purposeful Social Networking

Luis Suarez

FB, Twitter & G+. Take, for instance, Twitter. Over the course of time, the user experience has deteriorated so bad, including its third party, or even their own, Twitter Apps that I have been on the brink of giving up on it altogether and never walk back several times.

Reflections from 2011 – Redefining Your Social Web Presence

Luis Suarez

After having put together last couple of blog posts about some of my reflections from the year we are about to end around The Social Web and Technology in general, I guess it’s now a good time to share with the world the third one from the series.

Narrate Your Work, Working Out Loud, with Google Plus

Luis Suarez

are just a few of the capabilities that have made Google Plus escalate to number #2 position for yours truly of social technologies to enjoy nowadays. Yes, in Google Plus I no longer get to post as frequent as I perhaps do in Twitter.

Living “A World Without Email” … in Google Plus

Luis Suarez

In the last few weeks a lot has been written about whether Google Plus is the ultimate killer social networking site of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or several others, you name it. Worse still, e-mail is a black hole for knowledge.

@Janetter or How I Started to Enjoy Twitter Once Again

Luis Suarez

There used to be a time when I was very much in love with Twitter. But then, after a short while, I started hating Twitter. Over the course of just a few weeks Twitter managed to destroy, in a very pernicious manner, not only the overall user experience, but the entire ecosystem as well that made it a success in the first place: Third party apps. It was through my good friend Rachel Happe that I first heard (Of course, on Twitter!)

Whatever Happened to Critical Thinking?

Luis Suarez

And that was pretty ok, because upon checking their different Twitter accounts I was finding out that plenty of those bloggers have moved their blogging into someone else’s homes (Facebook, LinkedIn’s Pulse, Medium, etc. Reflecting on effects of paradoxes, constraints and incomplete knowledge.

From Adaptation into Engagement by Luis Suarez

Luis Suarez

It’s something that has been in my mind over the course of time in terms of how we get work done more effectively through these digital technologies. Regardless of the organisation or the management layer. So, instead of driving the adoption of middle managers from the European Commission, we talked about business purposes and how social technologies could act as a rather valuable and unprecedented enabler towards achieving a certain number of goals. Language matters.

Google Plus and The Enterprise – What’s The Deal?

Addressing Social Networking Gripes with Shared Value

Luis Suarez

So, a little bit of homework for us social networkers out there, I would think, if we would want to turn the tide around of bumping into more and more pet peeves around social technologies, and our consistent and growing abuse of them!

Harold Jarche

I was recently asked what I thought about content management systems (CMS); how content should be developed; whether generational differences should be considered; and how to keep content relevant. People with more diverse and deep knowledge networks get better information.

The Seek > Sense > Share Framework

Harold Jarche

[This article appears in Inside Learning Technologies January 2014]. Simple standards facilitated with a light touch, enables knowledge workers to capture, interpret and share their knowledge. We cannot become complacent with knowledge and just store it away.

Future of work is complex, implicit and intangible

Harold Jarche

The relationship between intangibles and tangibles reminds me of the implicit/explicit knowledge continuum. The explicit/tangible side is easier to measure, so that is where most management methods have concentrated their efforts.

Collective sense-making

Harold Jarche

I used to read many of the technology blogs, like TechCrunch and Read/Write Web but have dropped them from my feed reader and instead read posts that have been referred via Twitter, Google Plus or blog posts. Like electricity, knowledge is both particles and current, or stock and flow.

PKM 125

PKM in 2013

Harold Jarche

“The basic unit of social business technology is personal knowledge management, not collaborative workspaces.” Personal knowledge management (PKM) is a set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world and work more effectively.

Dave Snowden

My job today is to pick up on yesterday's pos t which was described on twitter as forever blunt and merciless. Its not enough to manage the information system, you have to manage the ecology of knowledge flow within an organisation. Brian Arthur in a brilliant book, shows the degree to which technology innovation depends on exaption rather the adaption. This is the key switch from managing rule base cultures, to enabling an ideation culture.
